"Likay Boy is some cute and clean fun... It is for those who need to distract hyperactive kids" -- BangkokPost (http://www.bangkokpost.com/tech/game/383541/game-on)
And those bright fireflies wafting in between
And over the swaying cornstalks, just above
All their dark-feathered helmets, like little green
Stars come low and wandering here for love
Of this dark earth, and wandering all serene—!
-- Fireflies in the Corn by D. H. Lawrence
Underneath a dark sky, Prince Taiku is finding his way to the moon palace.
Collect 16 fireflies for each lamp to light up the sky. Catch fans’ garlands to fly him high - and protect him from the drums come by.
Likay is a form of popular Thai folk dance exquisite in extravagant twinkling costumes and sparse in stage sets and storyline. Usually play in the night open air during the temple festival, its charming actors cast spell of worldly improvised drama and comedy keep audience smile from dusk to late night.
